Three of my Favorite Things

I’ve had a log day today. My company is on a shutdown so I’m forced to take some time off. This gives me a chance to do three of my favorite things. Photographing lighthouses, photographing birds and drinking great wine while I cull out the bad shots. I’ve been out in the field schlepping gear around all day in the hot sun. Tonight we are working on a bottle of Bartholomew Park Merlot, 2005. Mmmm. That’s good “&^#%!ing Merlot”.

If you’re curious about what I shoot when I’m not shooting fine food and wine, stop by ShootingMyUniverse.

And what do you know, there sits a sparrow. My husband had to evict them constantly, including their eggs. We finally sold the house in a yard sale.

It seems to me that one of the PM nesting sites in NH was on the bay not to far from me, but most of that land is hard to get to as it is private property. Maybe one day I'll make it down to Plum Island to check these beautiful birds out.
